One motive could be that she wants to achieve success by living an efficient and mediocre life.

It was a breaking point for mother especially when she saw her children look at only pepper and coffee beans on the kitchen table. Another motive of mother is wanting to determine her destiny in life by thinking of new possibilities that could occur in her life in the near future.
Runaway Theme, Plot and Conflict Theme: Through ‘Runaway’, Alice Munro intends to show that women themselves are the source of the problem as they resist change, especially women like Carla who are so used to their lives in the countryside that they are mostly dependent on the source of income, in this case, Clark. She may have also written this to depict events of her own life, when she divorced her first husband, James Munro to get a sense of real freedom and joy but soon after married a second husband because she did not like her life so much. In ‘Runaway’, Carla is shown to be a very complex and intricate character as she realizes her limitations when making her own decisions. Initially, Carla seems confident to leave Clark and Sylvia helps her to escape, but as soon as she gets of the bus station outside of town, she realizes she can’t really survive without his security
Walker does this by using characterization, symbolism, and theme. In the beginning of the story the narrator who is the mom is waiting for her daughter named dee. She waits in the garden with Maggie. She knows that Maggie and dee do not get along. She imagines a big nice family reunion in her head.
This is especially true for Curley’s wife. Curley’s wife is seen acting out throughout the novel as a way to pull attention to herself. This is done because nobody on the ranch, not even her husband will treat her as an equal. In today’s terms, it is like having a little sibling causing a tantrum so they can sway the attention and favor of their parents towards them. In conclusion, Curley’s wife is not the antagonist, but someone whose dreams have been shattered, and is someone who is trying to regain a spark of happiness in their life
I say, "And so she trudged up the wooden stairs, her sad brown shoes taking her to the house she never liked." (Cisneros,1984). The ability of Esperanza to make her life a story is the reason she can bare everything she goes through and a way to find maturity and her identity. We can see how Esperanza tries to become more independent and how she is able to identify the barriers that most of their family members have. She tells us about how her great-grand mother (whose name is Esperanza) have lived contemplating the view from the window like looking for some escape.

Steinbeck crafts Curley’s wife’s character to demonstrate the role of women in the 1930’s, and to prove that women will never be able to achieve the American Dream because of the sexist society present during that time period. Gender roles during the 1930’s were very prevalent. Men were free to do as they pleased while women were expected to be submissive housewives, meaning they must stay home alone and tend to the house. Curley’s wife is a perfect example of this as she was also expected to stay home without the freedom to socialize with others since she was the only female on the farm. Because of that Curley’s wife desperately desired a person she could talk to.
One she uses is point of view. The story takes place from a first person point of view; Mama’s point of view. Walker does this for a specific reason that is it gives more sincerity to the story. When it is told by someone involved in the story the reader can feel the emotions of the character speaking. For example, when Dee says something offending the reader feels offended too, because it is as if Dee is speaking to the reader.
